SMWE - New Alternative To HD-CVI, HD-TVI And AHD

Hello, I have followed the discussions of the relative merits of each of the analogue HD formats. I can see, understandably, the problems with having three incompatible formats, each of which in some way compromises the quality of the image, and each restricting the roadmap beyond 720p/60Hz or 1080p/30Hz standards.

We (my company) are therefore proposing yet another format which we are calling SMWE. We are not a security manufacturer so we will offer this to anyone who wishes to use it, from IC manufacturers to camera and DVR manufacturers. SMWE is not just another transmission standard, it has looked at the entire chain from image sensor to recorder and tried to optimise and more importantly, match the quality, of each element in the chain. For example, we can avoid the use of an ISP in the camera or extend recording time by a factor of more than 2x (for the same bit rate and image quality).

I don't want this to be an advert and I apologise if it comes across like that. As we are now building prototypes I would like comments about features and specifications that you feel are essential or just nice to have so we can try to incorporate them into the 'standard'.

All comments are welcome, even derogatory ones (although we may not act on them!) and also comments on the acceptance of yet another standard, albeit one that is 'open'.

Preliminary information on SMWE may be found here.

Thank-you for your time.
